What the hell were you people thinking when you came up with this ? The tought of having innocent little kitten being tortured for the only reason of being a collectable for some consumers of this complete utter nonsence. This has got to be the most idiotic idea i've ever heard of . I mean can you go to sleep at night without thinking of the disaster you've created. Can you look yourself in the eye when you look in a mirror and say your proud of it if. PETA ther's a word you should maybe read up on Also something eles to think about is animal rights and cruelty!

i was disgusted to see this evil practice contunued after so many complaints and the pain and suffering that the kittens go through for the pleasure of evil and selfish humans. perhaps you do not find this evil, but i do not see how. i hope this evil practice does not contunue, and will end soon, and that this web page closes down soon to follow the closure of the practice.

This is horrible, how can you possibly do something like this to a living creature????!!! The people that are in jail feel horrible having to live for years in a a small cell, imagine a cat in a jar where he canęt move!?! I say this is sick. I wish all the people who have bought this and supported this act the best in life because the karma that they will have to pay will be most horrible.

Honesty, I find it hard to believe that the Japs can actually call bonsai kittens as art. Just goes to show how cruel they really are. To those supporting the continuing of the 'art' of imprisoning small little harmless kittens in bottles : How would you like it if people locked you up in containers as well. Unless you enjoy that, I have no comments. The world is just getting so blind and cruel.*sigh*

The only people fooled by this are people stupid enough to believe that doing such things to a kitten would actually cause any reformation of the bones. or that get so infurriated at anything and everything that they just want to complain about something.

I can't believe you so called cat lovers didn't spot this as a hoax on first sight. How long exactly do you thing your cat could live in a glass box? Don't you know anything about biology? Get a clue.

i think that this is the most horrible way to treat the animals. i really do think that this site should be illegal and the whole idea of bonsai kittens and cats should not be carried out. i think that the poeople who actually do this, should be hung or put in a glass jar themselves, to see how they feel! the people qho do this are cruel and have no respect for the animals that they do this to!you people are bloody sick in the head!

I know you have heard this before...but you are an idiot. You are supposed to love and play with your pets (and all that frilly stuff). But putting them in boxes is a bit far. Actually now that I think of it...you are also a freak! Well I hope you have a pleasant day...and someone stuffs you in a box. :)

I received,via a web group I belong to, an e mail protesting the manufacture of bonsai kittens, referring to the bonsai web site, That person believed that the bonsai kitten practice was real and so did I=I CRIED and mailed it to some cat fan e-groups I belong to, encouraging them to protest until someone enlightened me that it was all a sick joke, I do NOT think the comparison to Jews in the Holocaust is inept. What if someone really would try to "improve" G-d"s creation--a "master race" of perfect kittens? There WERE such experiments performed on hapless victims at Auschwitz and Ravensbruck. It is disgusting and makes me want to puke that anyone can derive amusement from the alteration of any creature (except of course the general animal population control practice of spay and neuter, professionally done).

Atleast the bonsai kitten idea raised people's awareness of cruelty to animals. Every cloud has a silver lining! And this cloud is a hurricane... If you want to help stop or just learn about real life cruelty to animals you can start by visiting: PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - www.peta-online.org, ASPCA (the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) - www.aspca.orge or Humane Society of the United States - www.hsus.org.

I am sickened that people are so cruel to cats. They are peaceful, loving, domesticated animals that have done nothing to us. Especially since so many of these atrocious acts are commited by young people like myself. Don't we have any sort of feelings anymore?

Ok, look. Let us all settle down and think with logic for a second. (For people that are already using it, skip ahead. I m not saying anything new)
1: Commercially, do you think for a moment that with all this flaming / war upon their product, they would re-start the site (how many times?) It just isn t logical to do so upon a losing venture.
2: Realistically I m a High School-er, and I have the capacity to render a site like that given time, a digital camera, and Photoshop or similar. And to make my life easier, fireworks / and or other web software.
3: If it is real, why does it keep on screaming (at least to me) PRANK ? They don t list prices on much and have you ever heard of a site that doesn t?
4: I m just curious how many other locations have you checked for info beyond this site and your e-mail account? Info always helps, people. Also many of you that keep on crying about how this is unfair need to read what is within the comments section, and not just skim. There are comments that have a fair amount of sense there not just emotions. Had you done so, I probably wouldn t need to type this. I just feel nice enough right now to point out your flaws (or evil enough, whichever). Personally, I found this amusing you bleeding hearts cry over this, yet and I am recapping from someone else, you don t care about items like: veil, meat (do you know what the animals go through? And the effects upon the environment? Definite room for improvements), eggs (Same as meat), and there s more, I just can t go on forever. I m not trying to insult anyone; I am merely attempting to put in my 2 cents. That, and showing how if you ignore the past (comments), you make an (I m not going to say it, you figure it out) of yourself. I can see how people find this amusing - it is ruffling all of your feathers, and you scream like children that don t understand but this is coming from a mildly evil mind but it's still funny. Then again, the people that keep on commenting foolishly never read this bit anyway, oh well *grumble*

At first I was shocked, then after looking around on it, I realised it was fake & my shock turned to laughter as i thought of how serious reactions to it became (ie involving the FBI). I think that this site hopefully will make people realise that not everything should be trusted as fact/truth & that people should open their eyes & lighten up a bit

When I first got to this site, I assumed the entries had been manipulated in order to have the most insane, ridiculous one posted at the top - how else to explain the 'bonsai kittens are just like jews in the holocaust' post? I agree with others who have posted - the original site is somewhat funny, but these follow-up posts are much funnier, and really much more disturbing.

The bonsai kitten webmaster said that the kittens would not feel a pain because of their highly experienced ways of deforming the cats. But, NO. Just because kittens don't feel physical pain, it doens't mean it would not feel emotional pains of sorrow and loss of freedom. Bonsai Kitten is another way of a Jew in the Holocaust.

When I first got an e-mail that was talking about Bonsai Kittens I decided to check it out. I think it is a cruel mean thing to do I mean would they like it if I stuck them in a bottle and made them become deformed??? After I found out I went on the couch and snuggled with my two kittens until morning, real or not what a cruel thing to do.

I must say I am extremely releived to learn that this was a prank but the fact of the matter is that some people do not continue they're search and believe this is true this leads to very traumatic feelings. On the website itself it gives instructions on how to make your own bonsai cat and if these students where just posting this site to show something all that will happen is that people will try this at home. On the website there was a man who wrote that his daughter attempted this but did the wrong procedures and the jar exploded and cut her and mutalated her face i'm not sure if this really happened but this could happen in reality and hurt a child or in that matter an adult but if it were an adult attempting this i would hope that the jar would explode and glass would cut his arrtery therefore he owuld die because there is noplace in this world for sick f***s like that. I see no humour in this page and hope that something horandous and traumatizing happens to the creaters of this website you people are sick f***s. ROT IN HELL

I realise that the the whole bonsai kitten thing is an elaborate joke but I just want to say to all you people who believe that because it's a joke it's not something to stress about that you are dead wrong! These terrible images of kittens being mistreated are easily accessible to our children, in fact, often they are emailed directly to them! Whoevever thinks that seeing something so graphic at such an impressionable age wont affect the child is just plain ignorant. We complain about the violence portrayed in cartoons yet we are willing to sit back and do nothing about bonsai kittens? Shame on you, America! This site, and others like it, should be banned!

I'm sorry but I just accidentally found this article and I am quite fankly disgusted with these people. I mean come on! Who in their right mind would shove a kitten into a jar and try to "mold" it? I think that they should be shoved into a damn jar and fed through a tube.

Tonight I found my young daughter sitting at the computer in tears - she was very upset as someone had sent her an email about the bonzai kitten site - which of course she checked out. These young kids did not see through this very sick idea of a joke - So you might think it funny - but think of the psychological harm you are doing to young, caring animal lovers. Get a life you morons!
Saturday, August 30, 2003 at 03:58:34
Good grief. I've never seen such a hue and cry over anything so silly. People who can't see the humor in the site are not obligated to visit it. Judging from their comments, though, they should probably enroll in an English class. It's very difficult to make a convincing case for or against anything when your diatribes indicate such a poor understanding of grammar, spelling, usage, and punctuation. The real abuse and slaughter of the English language is of far more concern to me than the farcical mutilation of cats. Of even greater concern is that America is losing its sense of humor. That is a shame.
Friday, August 29, 2003 at 21:18:34
Who says Bonsai Kittens aren't raised for food? I've heard they're quite tasty - like veal - as well as cuddly. And I've never met a Bonsai Kitten who was on the lam from the law, like most male PETA members, for failing to support their own human children.
Friday, August 29, 2003 at 13:25:25
I just have a couple things to say... I cant say i like cats that much.. but when people start doing discusting shit like that to any animal .. i dont care what it is.. that is just horrible and you will rot so far down in hell that you dont know whats going to hit you.. i read a comment that " CANNEDHUNTHATER" ON auguest 6th 2003 wrote.. Hate to tell you this honey .. but this is real and mabye if you read it write and u wernt retarted you probably wouldnt look like a dick right now.. so next time READ THROUGH THE WHOLE THING.
dont worry about my name
Thursday, August 28, 2003 at 16:22:22
Bonsai kittens do not exist. They have never existed, even the photos are photoshopped. Everyone complaining about it, threatening to sue (ah, only in America!), claiming lasting psychological damage, get a life. Oh, and show me an English Professor that uses eight exclaimation marks in a mail and I'll show you a liar. Cheers

Oh dear. This is pathetic. I seriously think that some of you people need to get a life. It would be horrible IF IT WAS TRUE. Want me to repeat that one for you? Its just a joke, (not particularly funny, mind you) but not something to fully stress over! I'm more amused by those who actually believe that this site is real. I'm really sorry for you that no cats didn't get put in jars that aren't there and didn't grow up deformed to not be someones pet. I know you think you're being all sensitive and rightous by defending the non-existant 'Bonsai Kittens'. But honestly. And all that stuff about passing English? Congratulations!! You're an Advanced English Professor! I'm sure thats working great for you. Good luck with that. I personally don't see how understanding a joke and passing English work together, but oh well. Well, have a great life everyone! Don't forget to pick up your complementary Bonsai Kitten on your way out!
Tuesday, August 26, 2003 at 04:53:03
Whoever think this was fun...is stupid. Our kids need good examples, not sick ideas like this. It doesn't matter if it is a hoax, it could cause a lot of trouble to both kids and animals, if a youth would like to "find out by himself". We have to fight these criminals for the sake of our kids.

Monday, August 25, 2003 at 15:10:44
I understand that this is not real, but I wanted to post something here to the people who are insulting the people who believed that these kittens really were being stuffed into jars. I would like you to take a moment to think about all of the cruel things that people do to animals in REALITY, such as: hanging cats and skinning them to make a coat. Cutting a dogs vocal cords so that he doesn't scream when you cut him open alive in a college classroom with no anesthesia. Boiling a pig alive so that it's meat is tender. Burning off baby chicks beaks so they don't peck themselves and damage their meat. Now, a kitten stuffed in a jar doesn't seem so far off, does it?
Valerie
Sunday, August 24, 2003 at 18:30:06
I also think that onsaid kittens is animal cruelty. I think that someone should write to someone and tell them that this man who runs the website for bonsai kitten should be locked up and also tell them that what he is doing is animal cruelty. The act of smooshing a cat all up in a jar is bad and it should be stopped!
Katey
Saturday, August 23, 2003 at 14:29:54
i think that the practice and sale of bonsai kittens is absolutely disgusting and anyone who does so should be utterly ashamed of themselves. how would you feel if you were shoved in a glass jar so tight you couldn't move - purely for the satisfaction of the sick human beings who are to take home their 'bonsai kitten'. it's one of the most disgusting and un-natural things i have ever heard of, along with dancing bears and battery farms. to the people at bonsaikittens.com ... you should be very ashamed of yourselves and your 'art'!

yeah, it's a hoax. clearly. but still why waste your time with doing such stupid things and making people worry and think it's true. it's just plain dumb and it doesn't have a purpose so i think every person should do something only if does someone good and not making ineccent people worry and waste their time.
Thursday, August 21, 2003 at 20:41:02
That's sad. I mean it's sad because people would actually take time to create a site to make people mad and say that it's all a joke. I mean, when you think about it it's not all that funny really. Even to those who think it's funny, those who I find very immature, it's beginning to get old. All the complaints on the comment board are the same and I don't know why the people who control the site would actually pay to do something like that. Come on people, grow up. Putting up a site full of lame jokes is funnier than that stupid site. But seriously, grow up. P.S. This being said by a 13 year-old. Heh... to "MIT students"... GROW UP. Oh yeah and all those with the comment saying people don't have a sense of humor... I'm lauging, really. Hahaha to all of you stupid enough to make that site. You really know how to make yourselves look stupid. You should be proud.
Thursday, August 21, 2003 at 13:05:19
first i would like to start off saying i enjoy jokes and humor in almost any form, but do not enjoy "this". this message is to explain why this particular "joke" is unacceptable... i am a sophomore in high school at age 16 lending my portion of the next Generations' insights... I fully support the freedom of speech, however if you speak you shall face the consequences of your actions. meaning... if i yell i killed someone and posted pics of it on the internet i would imediately be arrested and a case would be put under investigation. what these people say they do and have the pictures to prove it, is such material that would be laible for this action according to the animal abuse laws. THIS IS NOT A HOAX BECAUSE THE KITTENS ACTUALLY HAVE IT DONE TO THEM AT ONE POINT AND TIME (look at the pictures!). criminal acts are not judged by the amount of time you did them (such as how long you keep a kitten in its tortured state, or how long you had its anus superglued). and to add... IT IS ILLEGAL TO ENVOKE, ENCOURAGE, URGE TO, PROVOKE, ETC., CRIMINAL ACTS in the United States of America.
Tuesday, August 19, 2003 at 23:48:50
I think the funniest part of all this is the comments page. These moronic fools have just finished reading that it's a hoax, then post about how cruel it is to do this to kittens. Riiiiiiiight. I believe any too stupid to pass english comment would be in reference to someone who can't read that it's a hoax. Obviously idiots can pass english too. The people who believe these things are probably the same ones who hurridly forward on chain mails within 15 minutes of recieving them so something terrible doesn't happen to them! The Bonsai Kitten site is mildly amusing. The idiots it brings out of the closet are far more so. Thanks!
Saturday, August 16, 2003 at 16:06:17
I'd like to say Kudos to the folks who thought this one up. Judging my the responses posted here, they made their statement pretty effectively. I think it's great that the critique of this hoax mentions Swift's A Modest Proposal. I would highly reccomend it to those out there with analytical minds. Sometimes the best way to make a point is to demonstrate the absurdity of those who oppose you. Also, I have to add that I am appalled at the comments left by many people on this site. I don't understand how you can call mistreating animals cruel and talk about wanting to stuff people in bottles or shoot them in the same sentance. Since when did the life of an animal become more precious and more important than human life? Once again, serious props to the guys at MIT who thought this one up. No, it's not funny "ha ha" but it very clearly illustrates the contradictory moral reasoning of so many readers.

Grow up, get a sense of humour. No one has done any wrong its just a joke. Most of all get some perspective, thousands of humans are being subjected to torture, genecide, murder, suffering, starvation and worse all the time. why dont you take the time to write a complaint about that to someone important instead of being sad and showing you have way to much time on your hands.by the way where can i get a good pic of a bonsai kitten for my desktop? hahahaha.
Friday, August 15, 2003 at 04:50:52
This is sick and wrong!!!!!!!! Anyone who does this to animals should have the same thing done to them! I wonder how they would like it if they were put in a jar and fed through a tube! And by the way, whoever made the statement that the people who are opposed to bonsai kittens are too stupid to pass English, guess what? I am an Advanced English professor at a high school

Lets hope that human conscience will not worsen to this day that humans actually turn to these Bonsai Kittens and make it real.
Thursday, August 14, 2003 at 02:46:53
Well i would like to say that when i first heard about this page i laughed histerically...... And then i went and saw the site for myself and i laughed even harder! For all those people yelling and cursing and getting upset, don't stress... it isnt half obviouse that this is a hoax. So stop getting upset and laugh your head off and congratualte the people involved... P.S Can i have a medium fries and a kitten "To go"?

Hey, this bonsai kitten site is discusting. i dont know what those idiots see in canning a poor defenseless animal. who knows soon it might be dogs, snakes and birds. i dont no but these people should go to jail. im not sayin this cuz im a cat lover its just ssoooooooo wrong. com'om that site is gross and should be shut down. If we did that 2 people we would go 2 jail. well just cuz its an animal it shouldnt b any diff.

My god! How sick and disgusting can you get! You can't use kittens like that... Besides it's a waste. Don't you know that kittens are better used for Origami? I have personally folded 5 different kittens into the likeness of a giraffe, my most challenging piece. Another, much more constructive use of kittens is the ever popular Kitten Darts. Take a kitten, clip all but one of their claws, throw them at a cork dart board and they will refelxively try to cling to it. The one sharp claw will sink into the board and Voila, what's the score, Fred? PS; Why stop at Kittens in jars... What about puppies, snakes, Iguanas... You could start a line of Canned Critters(tm) for all occasions and tastes. Just a thought.

That is animal cruelty and is illegal. They should go to jail. This is not an art it's a crime!

The comments about bonsaikitten.com amuse me almost as much as the site did. I don't need to break down how OBVIOUS it is that the site is fake when snopes.com did such a wonderful job already. Let me just put it this way: it's easy to pose a cat and take some pictures. It's funny that the people who are outraged have the hideous spelling and grammar, while the people that get the joke actually passed english.

Who would want a poor LIVING and BREATHING animal in a glass jar in their living room? NOT ME! If you want a decoration that bad go out to the store and buy a stuffed animal and shove it in the bottle. If we were shoving people in the bottles than we would be taken to court and eventually put in jail. But since its a poor defensless animal its ok. RRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHTTTTTTTTTT! thats just nasty and wrong.
Friday, August 08, 2003 at 13:05:17
www.bonsaikitten.com is a sick joke created by MIT student in 2000. Forwarding the website around only supports the insanity. The website should be shut down.

This whole idea of Bonsai Kittens is gross and wrong. I think it should all be stopped. Think about your self living in a bottle for your whole life.
Wednesday, August 06, 2003 at 14:23:00
I've read some of the comments on this and I myself was so pissed off when I first saw the Bonsai Kitten website. I emailed and called a few A.P.A's (Animal Protection Angencies) I knew of and asked if they could stop it, help out etc. It was a hoax, or at least whoever they checked out was doing a major hoax. It looks real, but it's not, unless my sources were wrong, which I highly doubt. If it was true that people were sick enough to do this, I'd glady stuff them in a bottle and just let them die. No mercy for animal abusers, whats the difference between a human and an animal? Nothing except looks. Hope this helped people, and animals.

Ok, for all the people who think that bonsai kitten is real, have you read "the method". notice it says 1 week old kittens will bounce, they don't. (no i haven't tried it, but i've held very young kittens, and they have pretty firm bones considering how young they r) oh yeah and say if for some reason 1 week old kittens were flexible (which they aren't) the kittens in the pic.s r like almost like a month old if not older. i would like them to put a sign on the site to let people know it's fake but if you have half a brain and you read the whole thing u can tell it's fake. stop worrying about fake sites and start worrying about real animal abuse, like canned hunts where exotic animals are kept in cages all their lives until they r let out to be attacked by dogs and are shot, for prizes. now that's a real problem.

I reckon that actually commiting something so sick and evil is beyond comprehension and making a small creature that is on this earth to live and not to be shoved into a compact glass jar. The cat can't get out to wander around like normal cats and it can't eat by itself, it has tubes shoved into it feeding it. I really want this sick craze to stop.

I'm not sure if people are really this dumb or just trying to pull our chains. When reading the posts regarding Bonsai Kitten, I'm really dumbfounded. One poster indicates "I know that this is not a hoax, and it is wrong. Kittens do not need to be put in a bottle so that the tourists of new york and new zealand can keep them as a memory". I wonder how this poster knows its true when the offending website itself says its a hoax. The same poster rants and raves about buying a real kitten and treat it like you're supposed to treat pets. Uh, buying kittens from a cattery promotes animal cruelty. Animal rights activists advocate adoption and rescue from shelters and humane societies, not buying. Another poster states "Yes there is a lot of injustices to animals besides this one but you have to start some where." Brilliant logic!! Lets attack something fictitious and solve all the worlds injustices towards animals. The stupidity is so hard to believe that maybe they're just pulling our chains.
Tuesday, August 05, 2003 at 20:28:19
I know that this is not a hoax, and it is wrong. Kittens do not need to be put in a bottle so that the tourists of new york and new zealand can keep them as a memory. If the want a cat don't buy the skeleton of one, when you get home buy a REAL kitten and treat like you are supposed to treat pets, this is stupid and something needs to be done by the FBI or something I mean why do this to incecent things, they can't stop these people unlike us, we can do something about it, that is why there is a pation going around to stop this, so if you get it please sign it and email it to as many people as you can so we can get this cruel act stopped as soon as possible and before anymore cats are put in tho these glass cages and die....

Anyone who does this to an animal should be shot or have that done to them so they can understand what that animal is going through. Animals look to us for their welfare and also love and affication. Yes there is a lot of injustices to animals besides this one but you have to start some where. There is also a differance between doing it because your are truely a sick individual and trying to make a commerical enterprise out of it. Animal cruelity is an issue that is like the War on terrorisim it will never be finish but each step is one step closer to extingtion of that activity and display of how humans can be cruel and unjust creatures, and may i say below the level of magits
Monday, August 04, 2003 at 21:18:47
bonsai kittens...hoax or not? I'm not sure. I went to the site from a link in an email petition against it and I was in tears. Perhaps it did not originate as a prank, but the students called it off after all the controversy? I dont know, and I dont think we'll find out FOR SURE. But whether it is a hoax or not, cruelty to small animals, (intended,done,or even joked about) is often the first sign of a phycosis that is common in serial killers. The people who supposedly thought this was funny should be evaluated immediately,then stuffed into a small jar after being fed muscle relaxers, having their butt sealed with superglue, and be fed through a tube. Then we should post their disgusting pictures on a website.

THis is so cruel~!
Sunday, August 03, 2003 at 18:17:02
www.bonsaikitten.com is a hoex, i cant belive that they would even think about something si cruel! I'm not sure if there really is a guy in New York selling bonsai kittens though but no animal should be treated like this at all! I mean bonsai plants are plants they aren't alive! Kittens are alive! How could someone be so cruel to even think or do this! People are going to have ideas of doing this..It's so evil!
Sunday, August 03, 2003 at 18:12:28
I see all thje peoplr on this website are outraged by this bonsai kitten crap...well at least they get to live...wut about all the other animals in the world that die because there isna't someone there to care for them...and I htink the only reasn ppl are really outraged about this one is becuz its a binch of "poor little kittens"...well wut about the poor little calves that are slaughtered for beef?...no one speaks up for them...think aobut it...
Saturday, August 02, 2003 at 16:44:48
I find it funny how you can shove a Kitten, so small and delicate, so young, and soo cute! into a friggin glass jar. If you want to find out what happens when you shove a living mammal into a glass jar, than shove urself in one. Ohh yeah, they say "its fine, they cant feel a thing" Cat's have almost the same features and feelings as humans. They have bodies, and those bodies can very well die if held in a JAR! That is soo disgusting, it makes me want to scream! Obviously you have no lifes and want to be cruel to animals...hmmm, y cant we shove humans into jars...like first borns??? Y cant we? Huh? huh?...haha yeah, cuz humans are differen't and dont have the right quality to shove into a container. You know wut im done talking about this, becaus the more i do the more it gets revolting...I just wanted to say that you all have no lifes for doing such a thing, and should stop before ppl start going crazy and shove you into a jail cell ;)...haha i would like that...but wut ever, you guys are sooo damn cruel, its not even funny...wait until algore becomes president, no animal cruelty!
Saturday, August 02, 2003 at 10:59:35
For those who really want to help stop animal cruelty go to tsatgroup.cjb.net Spread the word!
Friday, August 01, 2003 at 21:40:05
A kitten or any animal should not be treated like a plant. If these people want to see what happens when you shove a living animal in a container, than I will gladly shove that person in one. The bonsai kitten is cruel and unusual punishment and also this is the United States of America a country that is wondrful but if there are people out there willing to do this to animals than they need to be exiled in a tiny little jar. A kitten or animal should be free they have rights to. Also it is digusting.
Friday, August 01, 2003 at 11:46:43
Why all the fuss about Bonsai Kitten, known to be a hoax, when there are real animal cruelty issues out there. For starters, why isn't there much outrage about all the dogs and cats killed in this country because of not enough homes to go around? To make matters worse, places like Enoch, Utah; Jefferson-Madison County, Indiana and Henry County, Kentucky are just a few places where animals are killed by very cruel and barbaric methods. To all who whine about Bonsai Kitten, get a grip. There are real animal cruelty issues out there.
Thursday, July 31, 2003 at 13:23:09
I think you all who work for bonsai kitten suck monkey balls!!! You are sooo cruel to animals or in this case, kittens! They have feelings too and they are alive! I hope you all get sued.
Wednesday, July 30, 2003 at 12:55:16
I DON'T CARE IF IT'S A PRANK OR NOT. WHAT IF PEOPLE GET IDEA'S FROM THIS.OH NO WAIT THEY ALREADY HAVE. JUST SEEING THE PICTURERS OF THE CATS IN THE JAR IS REVOLTING. I THINK YOU SHOULD REALY RETHINK THIS. I MEAN I'M ONLY TELVE AND I'M NOT THAT STUPID. ONLY TWO YEAR OLDS DO THIS. I THINK THE ONLY REASON YOU DO THIS IS TO GET LETTERS LIKE THIS.IF THEY BREATH AND FEEL THE PAIN THE ARE LIVING, AND DESERVE A CHANCE TO LIVE. sO YOU TWO YEAR OLD I HOPE YOU RETHINK THIS PRANK OF YOURS = -(
Tuesday, July 29, 2003 at 19:26:01
Bonsai Kitten amuses me greatly. I don't see what all the fuss is about...I mean, if you look at the gallery pictures the kittens are MUCH older than they should be for the "process", they wouldn't fit into the bottles ANYWAY and the jar-pictures are made simply by putting the kittens face in the jar & taking a picture. Also, the Siamese kitten...is a CAT! If Bonsai Kitten WAS real however....I would be interested in it. Sure it would be unspeakably cruel...but animals like that spark curiousity, remember how popular freak shows used to be? It's virtually the same concept...people are horrified but intrigued by anything abnormal. I'm going to end this on the same point I started with - Bonsai Kitten amuses me greatly.
Tuesday, July 29, 2003 at 04:08:34
I was reading through the comments posted about the whole BK thing and came to realize something rather amazing - Some of these idiots still think this thing is for real. "That is so horrible who would do somthing like that. If i ever met someone who did that kind of stuff i would putt them in a jar and see how they like it." Hello, it's fake. And if someone is stupid enough to do something like this to abuse an animal because they saw it on a website, chances are they would have seen something somewhere else and done it as well. I think it's about time someone made some Bonsai People, but thats just me.
Tuesday, July 29, 2003 at 00:06:57
Animal cruelty and abuse were around long before the Internet. Someone who abuses animals doesn't get their ideas from the Internet. Look at all the movies that portray ridiculous things. Pranks, no matter how offensive, are protected by the 1st amendment of the U.S. constitution. Anyone with half a brain can figure out that if Bonsai Kitten was ignored, it would quietly go away. Instead, all the crusades to shut it down only encourage and empower them to keep going.
Monday, July 28, 2003 at 11:27:27
AMAZING! This is one of thoes hoaxes that you find rarely, one that pisses off people when they think it's real, and when they know it's not. I cannot belive people were stupid enough to think this is real. I admit I went into the website knowing it was fake already, but... HOW? This prank was Grade A. As a famous pankster once said, "Pranks are great as long as they ruffle some feather, yet don't really hurt anyone." Or something like that.
Sunday, July 27, 2003 at 20:40:48
Who ever invented this you need to go to hell!If you think it is funny well i bet your next life will be a living hell b/c you will be one of those kittens stuck in one of those boxes not being able to move you fu**** idiots.You know that what you are doing to gods creations is so stupid of you because he i swatching what you are doing and carma is going to get you for what you are doing!I am proud to say that it is soooooooo wrong what you are doing and you are going to get it back!

What these people are ding is wrong. I am 14 years old andhave been an animal rights activist for many years. I have visited many websites about these bonsai kittens. These people are disgusting. If you can call art "putting a kitten in a glass container", then i don't know whats wrong with you. These animals suffer, and no one likes to suffer. People all over the world are being asked for common deceancy, so why can't people show some to the animals that also live in our world. Next time you look at an animal abusive website, think to yourself: What if that was you?
Saturday, July 26, 2003 at 20:55:02
joke or not, that website which was supposed to be funny and hilarious, was obviously not to loads and loads of people! SO WHAT IF IT IS A JOKE?! IT'S EXACTLY THIS SORT OF THING THAT ENSURES SOME IDIOT OUT THERE WILL ACTUALLY DO IT!!! IF THEY CAN GET THE ATTENTION THAT WEBSITE HAS BEEN GETTING, THEN OF COURSE THEY'RE GONNA DO IT!!! Bonsai Kittens and it's supporters were just too stupid to figure it out.
Friday, July 25, 2003 at 10:07:35
When i first saw the site a couple years ago, i was outraged! i emailed all my Illinois contacts in Washington about the site. I am now relieved to find that the site is false. i am also extremely embarassed for even believing the site. reading it just now, a second time with the knowledge that it is a hoax, i can kill myself for believing it. While i was looking at it again, i could easily see that this is a huge hoax. the site is not even professional, it is satirical, and makes a mockery of cats. THAT alone should've been a giveaway that it's fake. no real organization would make fun of their own business. Also, the anus sealing thing. that's all fake, why didnt i, or anyone else catch that?
WE'VE ALL BEEN TAKEN FOR A RIDE.

Thursday, July 24, 2003 at 16:25:56
i think that anyone who is against this whole bonzaikitten.com thing should band together to stop it in the united states and also anywhere else that our efforts will be successful. there must be something we can do. how is one to do that to an innocent animal? after visiting the site i and crying whilst going through the gallery i am now enraged that someone could have the heart to do something like that.
Thursday, July 24, 2003 at 15:46:19
OKay, who ever would do this to any animal should be stuck in a small jar themselfs!!!! I cant believe anyone would do this and to a baby! How the hell is this no crule?? You have issues for just having this on the internet! Get a life bastard and leave the poor animals alone
Thursday, July 24, 2003 at 14:53:32
Yeah ok so it may have been a hoax but they still have the sick minds to actualy think of doing such a thing, also how did they do the pictures without harming the animal?ya know these people must have absolutaly NOTHING better to do cos that is 1 of the cruelest things you CAN do.
Thursday, July 24, 2003 at 12:59:05
That is so horrible who would do somthing like that. If i ever met someone who did that kind of stuff i would putt them in a jar and see how they like it.
Wednesday, July 23, 2003 at 22:58:43
Congratulations to the Bonsai Kitten creators in demonstrating how stupid people can be!! Even when told the site is a hoax, there are plenty out there who continue to be hysterical and throw hissyfits. For everyone who is still offended by this site even after being told it is a hoax, ask yourself this question; What will happen if everyone just ignored this site and not pay any attention? What will happen if I go hysterical and go on a hate mail crusade to shut down the site? The answer seems obvious but there are many out there who are too stupid to figure this out. And remember the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees us the right to free speech and that includes speech in poor taste and being a jerk. Grow up and acquire some critical thinking skills!!
Wednesday, July 23, 2003 at 13:42:57
Even if this whold thing is a hoax, it's still disgusting. Do you have ANY idea how much this upsets people??! HONESTLY! Are people these days really so brainwashed that they think this is cute, cool, or otherwise appealling?? Anyone who thinks this is cool should try getting jammed into a bottle!
Tuesday, July 22, 2003 at 19:05:08
THIS IS OUT RAGIS, GROSS,AND DISGUSTING, EEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. THIS MAKES ME SOOOOOOOO MAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tuesday, July 22, 2003 at 15:58:41
personally i think what he is doing to the cats is really un human and he should stop and i really dont think they should give out how to do this to a cat because it could incurage other people to do the same to the cats.

Tuesday, July 22, 2003 at 13:36:49
this is crule and discusting this should not be on the internet and we should try and do something about what he is doing.

I cant belive that People would do that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you know that In the Egyiptian Days, Animals Were thought of as gods? Were did that respect go? Huh? I would Like to know that! I want to see this gone! No more animal Hurting, There are enough animals out there that are mal-Nutritioned and Beatin and starvin! Oh my god! Hello Out ther? Is anyone thinking?
Monday, July 21, 2003 at 21:19:17
I run a website on animal cruelty. The e-mail I get from gullible and naive individuals is really amazing. Bonsai Kitten is a website to prove that many animal rights activists don't think and believe anything they're told. Sadly, I think this is the case. It is NOT promoting animal cruelty since there is no Bonsai Kitten!! If you think about it, the premise of Bonsai Kitten is ridiculous and so obviously fake. The creators of Bonsai Kitten just love all the attention they are getting. The best thing to do is to ignore this site and educate others that this is a fake. Anyone who continues to throw hissyfits over the Bonsai Kitten site needs to develop some critical thinking skills.
Monday, July 21, 2003 at 14:58:30
You people are very mean! I havent seen such childesh Things! Im a child and i know better than to make up that site! And other people said that we were dumb for believeing it well its hard not to from everything else weve heard about its not hard to believe!
Sunday, July 20, 2003 at 21:40:34
But, if the Bonsai Kitten thing is all a big hoax, then how are all the pictures so real looking? The cats are in actual bottles!!! Personally, I think it is real, but AWFUL. And also, in the comments there was a person who, like, actually saw them in Tibet or whatever...So, I think everyone should stop thinking it's a big prank, when really, it is a true act of animal cruelty.
Sunday, July 20, 2003 at 18:25:46
Okay i feel like a major tard for acutally beliving this. my friend and i were gonna make another petition and send it all over the us trying to stop this. I'm so glad you told us it's not true! I am so stupid! But seriusly, that's not to funny. MIT, how much spare time do you have????Yarg. Well, you guys really saved me alot of time. Hehe. That's some good photoshop skills right there!!!! But then, it's an institute of technology...Okay- I'll stop babbling.
Sunday, July 20, 2003 at 14:54:18
YOU PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID. I CANT BELEIVE THAT YOU COULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS. MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE SHOT OR STUFFED IN A JAR. I WANT TO SHOOT YOU SO BADLY RIGHT NOW.YOU DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND.NOBODY I KNOW LIKES YOU OR YOUR WEBSITE BECAUE YOU ARE CRUEL AND YOU SUCK MONKEY ASS.....ANYWAYS YOU NEED TO FIND A GIRLFRIEND BECAUS YOU MUST BE PRETTY LONELY IF YOU STUFF CATS IN JARS FOR A LIVING...
Saturday, July 19, 2003 at 20:18:19

Saturday, July 19, 2003 at 20:11:23
You people are so stupid it amazes me, Bonsai Kitten is a fake site. There is no such think as manipulating animals in a jar in Asian culture. What ignorant white trash house wives you are. Pull your heads out and get a sense of humor. The web page is made just to get simpletons like you pissed off. Stop being so small minded.
Friday, July 18, 2003 at 11:46:57
I almost vomited when I saw the bonsai kitten website. I was never REALLY sure if it was a joke or not, until I realized there were no prices listed for the actual kittens. My sister thinks it's real, and I'm emailing a copy of this article to her. Thank you very much for this information, it will put her mind at ease.
Friday, July 18, 2003 at 08:07:12
Gawd, some people in the world are idiots. If you think it's real then you're a d**k. If know it is a hoax yet still complain then you have no life. Either way just shut up because you are only embarrasing yourself. Well done Bonsai Kitten for showing the rest of us who the stupid people are.
Wednesday, July 16, 2003 at 17:34:35
Even if this is a hoax, putting up websites like this that are supposedly hilarious (I personally think it's cruel and horrible) could inspire the freaks and idiots of this world to actually attempt what they advertise as safe and healthy. The site should be removed immediately to prevent such atrocities from possibly occurring.
Wednesday, July 16, 2003 at 13:42:31
The people who think this Bonzai Kitten thing is a good idea should be shot and left to rot in a sewer covered in rats! I dont know how anyone could be so inhumane and disturbed. If you think stuffin poor kittens in jars is a form of art, then i might as well stuff you in a kitchen cabinet and let you be crammed in there with your own body fluids. The Bonzai Kitten thing has to be stopped!!!

This is one of the most cruelest things i have ever seen in my life like i knw i am only 14 buteven me as a teen can see that this is sick!I think that these people need help or need to seek some aid cause this is rediculos like putting a baby kitten in a jar like imagine putting a human in a jar and making it live im just warning all who look @ this entry that this thing is going to be over soon so have all your fun while you can!
Wednesday, July 16, 2003 at 06:41:19
any1 who thinks it is "cool" and "smart" should go be put in a jar and fed through a tube... YES i KNOW it's a hoax... but in case u ppl haven't noticed, sum of these ppl don't know that now do they?!
Wednesday, July 16, 2003 at 06:30:08
Interesting Ideas. The INTERESTING part is that people get up in arms and involve the FBI over a college prank but when real abuse to CHILDREN is going on every day in North America - no one raises a hand to stop it. Everyone just turns and walks away. I guess we value animals more than children in this day and age. Too sad.
Tuesday, July 15, 2003 at 08:20:37
k,the bonsaiikitty thang is getting out of hand!! i got that letter 2 sign, looked @ the web pg, and did some research!! my friends were disgustard!!!!!! they hav a seperate page 4 a pettition, it looks real! they talk of putting cats in soccerballs!!!!!!omg! put them in laptop like positions!ect! if it iz a hoax, were did they gert da grousome pics!

Monday, July 14, 2003 at 12:00:56
Me and my m8 mick think it's a top idea putting poor defenceless kittens into a jar and feeding them through a tube!! We would h8 2 think this was a hoax. We've just vacuum packed my yorkie terrier, it's not moving very much but it still has a heartbeat. Keep up the good work. All the best Johnny & Mick. P.s. Pictures of my dog can be found on vacuumpackeddog.com

Monday, July 14, 2003 at 04:46:25
Bonsai Kitten is cruel. Kittens and cats are not here for us to slam into a jar and feed it through a tube. Would you like that to happen to you? How would you feel getting put into a small jar and staying in there for a long time and getting fed through a bottle. Cats have lives to. Just like us and it needs to stop now. This is just cruel and no one and I mean no one should be allowed to do this at any time or any where!!! IT NEEDS TO STOP!!!!!!!
Saturday, July 12, 2003 at 11:13:24
You people are some of the stupidest people I have ever heard of. It is sooooo cool. I can't believe that so many people fell for it. Did the FBI really get involved?! Hmmmm...that's, special. yeah so, good job but don't do it again.

Have you come across a website called "Bonzai Kittens" I truly believe this is a hoax, but the web site is so proffessionally done it has fooled many. At first I too was outraged by these Bonzai Kittens, however as I read on I realized it could not be true. It's a well done site.

The story on the Bonsai Kittens was very interesting as I just received in my e-mail over 450 names against this type of cruelty. Most of the time I would sign and send it on to over fifty people that I know would also sign. However for some reason I held back and thanks to your site I have E-mailed those friends that sent it to me. Hopefully they in turn will do the same. Bill

The MIT student who created the Bonsai Kitten website had a very warped sense of humor. Thanks for including the information on your website.

Rita, Rest assured that no one is sealing kittens inside glass jars! It's all a joke that was created by some college students two or three years ago.

Hi! I have received an e-mail from Germany asking for my signature to protest and close--for the third time--a website of people that put kittens into a glass after they use muscle relaxants, etc. and leave them in the glas, feeding them through tubes to keep them alive. Eventually, the kitten take on the shape of the bottle. Their website is: www.webmeowster@bonsaikitten.com. Have you heard of this one? Please tell me that this is a hoax. It is unbelievable and absolutely discusting. Looking forward to your reply.

Very nice. Read the book and everything. It's great. The other day I got an email about the bonsai kittens and I went to the site. It looks completely fake.

Hi! First of all - brilliant website! We need more like this! (or not, seeing that you've invented it..) I tried to find, unsuccessfully, the page for bonsaikittens (www.bonsaikittens.com) which at times circulate as chain mail attachments for people to react to. I've read about this actually being investigated by the FBI - don't know if this is for real, but the webpage certainly is not. =o) Another thing I would have found useful, is misattributed quotations - such as the Marie Antoinette "Let them eat cake" and the Mariah Carey "I want to be like the kids in Africa, skinny, but no death and stuff" - which I've read have not come from them - no matter how good it would've been..=o) Anyway, good luck and keep up the good work - I'll keep checking back on your site! All the best

I really enjoyed your site and found it really informative and had a laugh about some stupid cases. My search originated from the brutality of the bonsaikitten.com and eventually ended in your site and i was very glad in realising that everything was fake. However i still have an unclear question in my mind.... a lot of news in the web states that bonsaikitten.com is fake, everything is ok with that. But does this brutality really exists? Thanks and keep up the good work.

Don't worry. Bonsai Kittens is definitely a hoax. It was created by an MIT student with a strange sense of humor. The FBI has investigated it and found no evidence that any animals were actually harmed.

whilst searching for tips on bonsai farming me and a friend came across this web site. http://www.bonsaikitten.com I would be most grateful if you could confirm this as a hoax. If you like fluffy kittens, don't go to this site.

I'd just like to tell you something. The link you have to Bonsai Kittens is extremely revolting, especially for a cat lover. Please take it off or at least oppose it somehow. This is not a hoax, believe it or not. They used to do it to children in the late 18th century. Please take your link off! Or at least tell people about the horror of this reality. Thank You!

You have got to add www.bonsaikitten.com, supposedly conceived by students from MIT, and currently under investigation by the FBI.
